I haven't seen much on the Sony W90. I want an ultra-compact, with stabilization, and a viewfinder. This seems to have what I need, has anyone had one? I am basically a point and shoot, general family shots and holidays.

Thanks

I have no experience with the Sony W-90. However, it has received pretty good reviews. One nice feature of the Sony W-series is that they have an optical viewfinder.

I have a bit of experience with the W-55 and it seemed to be a very good camera. Here is a sample photo from the W-55.

The reviews I have read say the W90 doesn't take as good of pics as the W80, megapixels too high for the sensor? and the low light shots aren't as good. Any ideas on other cameras with those specs and price. I read good on the Canon 850but they were $140 more than the Sony.

In the very same price range and lower, you will find the Canon A-570IS which is actually selling on the internet below $(US) 200. While it is somewhat bigger, it does have IS, $X optical zoom, and an optical viewfinder. The A-570IS has received excellent professional reviews and great user comments.
